What could be nicer than to see the snowdrops in the Park? Such a lovely sight and sure to lift the spirits on a winter’s day.
There’s always plenty going on in the Park and this month is as busy as usual. A sunny morning stroll gave time to appreciate the trees and also to spot the first shoots of daffodils emerging. The gardeners were busy planting in the border by the ticket office and the tennis courts with some fine, healthy plants which will fill out the border in the coming months. Elsewhere contractors arrived at the duck pond to begin desilting the inlet and outlet. By removing the build up of organic material this will increase the capacity of the lake and help to improve the water flow and increase the oxygen levels.
